Metro: A Series of Unfortunate Events


Remember when I got all temporally mixed up and mistakenly said “yesterday” yesterday about a Red Line track fire at Farragut North? Now I can say it and be correct: Fire Reported Inside Farragut North Metro Station. Third time since last Friday, and the Metro’s closed between Metro Center and Dupont Circle. As you can see from the alert ticker screenshot above, delays are affecting all lines in both directions, possibly due also to the reports of smoke at West Falls Church and the Braddock Rd Metro bomb scare. Not to mention the Farragut Square bus fire. All in one morning.

Not a good day or a good week for WMATA. Me, I think I’m walking to work today.

    Can we clone Dan Tangherlini? Seemed like Metro actually worked when he was general manager. Perhaps now that he’s DC City Admin we’ll be seeing some amazing things coming out of the DC gov’t. Yet I can’t help but feel nostalgic for the days when Metro was under his leadership.
